2B.GROUP | The Oh!dessa Apartment

The is a 180sqm apartment located in Odessa, Ukraine. Another recently completed project by 2B.GROUP architecture firm.

The owner had requested the architects to create an open space that is conducive for hosting parties and guests, but still feel cozy for her.  To create an open sense of space, there are minimum doors or walls in the apartment. Instead, different zones of living space were subtly divided by concrete columns, curtains, and different floor heights. The layout of the apartment is carefully planned in such a way that her guests can mingle from one zone to the other with ease, but when a guest stays in one area, he only see what is functionally justified and preserving privacy of other areas.

The overall look of the apartment speaks industrial. To bring warmth to the concrete columns and ceiling, there are plenty of wood used in the furniture and kitchen. In the bedroom, did you notice that moorings were used to create the mouldings on the wall? The idea feels original, and it is a nice touch that added elegance to the interior.

Oh yea, remember to check out the toilet/bathroom of this apartment. So stylish that it will impress every guests!

2B.GROUP | Lipinka Apartment in Kiev

Lipinka 11

This modern 90sqm apartment is a project completed by 2B.GROUP, an architectural firm from Kiev, Ukraine owned by two young architects, Viacheslav Balbek and Olga Bogdanova.

The apartment looks spacious for a 90sqm owing to the open-layout and the clean lined structure. As you browse through the images, do look out for some of the cute little details in the apartment. Customised handles and knobs on the cabinetry, cubby holes for wine bottles storage in the dining area, whimsical art piece by the dining table and the old suitcase-turned wall storage – the details speak well for the space.
